An Automated Vertical Saw For Panel Production-Image

TigerStop, LLC, the global pioneer in automated stop/gauge and pusher systems, is pleased to announce an exclusive partnership with Safety Speed Mfg., a worldwide industry leader in high quality panel processing machinery.

Faced with immense customer and industry demands, Safety Speed Mfg. approached TigerStop for a solution to automate their 7400 series vertical panel saw to provide an innovative production system for the wood, metal, plastic and panel processing industries.

Responding to customer demands, Safety Speed Mfg. redesigned the 7400 series vertical panel saw to integrate with a TigerStop® or SawGear™ system. TigerStop® is an automated stop/gauge and pusher system with an easy-to-use computerized interface. Simply enter a dimension on the keypad and the stop positions itself for accurate cuts every time. This tough and durable system is ideal for medium-high level metal and wood production shops.

SawGear™ is an affordable solution perfect for home center stores, as well as, small-mid size shops needing an efficient automated machine for metal and wood production. This precise and rugged length measuring system comes equipped with an intuitive keypad allowing instant positioning of the stop for accurate cuts every time.

Both systems easily mount to the Safety Speed Mfg. vertical panel saw. Shops can expect a dramatic setup and cutting time savings, while substantially reducing material waste and rework, labor costs, installation time and manual processes. Shops can receive an extensive 3-year return on investment with a product payback time of 2-6 months. Brian Donahue, President, Safety Speed Mfg., stated; "Improving our customers' processes is our first priority. TigerStop was instrumental with this initiative and our partnership is a step in the right direction. Their reputation, product and response time is first rate."

Affirming their collaboration, Spencer Dick, President, TigerStop, LLC, stated; "We are very excited about our partnership with Safety Speed Mfg. Integrating our systems with their vertical panel saw allows small, medium and high-level shops to automate production affordably, quickly and easily. It's a much-needed industry breakthrough."

Both TigerStop® and SawGear™ will be available as an option with the Safety Speed Mfg. vertical panel saws as of June 1, 2012. Contact Safety Speed Mfg. for more details. TigerStop and Safety Speed Mfg. will be at the International Woodworking Fair (IWF) in Atlanta, GA on August 22 - 25, 2012. Join us for a product demonstration at booth 5929 or 6013.
